    Question I don't really understand

    I did some research on the word internet troll and it seems like they are saying that is'a a person who hurts or trying to scare people, trying to plant fear in their heart and harassment that can take over a discussion. Now I would NEVER do such thing but I just wonder why some people think I' am a troll. I' am a very nice caring guy and I would never be mean to anymore or hurt there feelings. Are people making fun of me when they say I' am a troll. Or are they just joking around or are they making fun of me since I' am gay or what???


    This is not the only forums that say I' am a troll there are few others too. I never knew what it meant but I now know it's a bad thing.

    you got the wrong meaning of troll,

    you looked up troll, and found the "creepy fantasy stories troll", or the like.

    the meaning of "troll", on an internet forum, means that the person in question is posting a thread or a post in which he/she is ignoring other responses, just "trolling"/ranting ahead, saying things that are irrelevant. in general, they just want attention, or trying to upset other members because they just continue to whine on about one particular subject, without making any progress.

    and I'm not saying you are a troll, but many people that don't know you, will read your threads and think that way.

    Keep them spinning,

    How would any one know you were gay unless you told them and what relevance does your sexual persuasion have for audio? If you aren't a troll then feel free to jump in on a thread you feel you can contribute something to and keep with the subject matter.

    Oh honey, I wish you were here to help me iron and hang my new curtains. As I have shared with you I am gay. Believe me the reaction to you is not because you are gay. Do you notice the number of replies you receive when you post a question? Members are taking their time to offer advice. I only banned you briefly to get your attention. Please try to read and understand what others are trying to teach you.

    One member even thought about several of us donating quality components to you. I had a pair of speakers I thought you might enjoy. Of course I know how you buy and sell components and I thought members would be upset if you took the donations and bought cheap computer speakers. Much like the JBL's you sold and miss. No one would have thought of that if you were disliked.

    We know you have challenges to overcome in life but you are still welcome here. You have been thought of as an internet troll (not a scarey one) because of posting similar questions often without any acknowledgement of members advice. Next time post a question read the responses, do not respond, read them again the next day to see if you understand the advice. Those giving advice would appreciate the respect of their opinions.

    Sir T, I have convinced Pix to donate his old Vizio LCD to you so you don't have to keep watching that old CRT. No need for thanks, just showing the love.

    Oh great, a panel with pig skin juice on it

    Mr. P, you hold on to that love bruh. The only thing a vizio can do for me is to stay completely out of all of my crash pads.

    That damn old CRT still has to see a real competitor from any consumer panel. The only panel to equal that CRT cost three times as much as it did, even after customization. Not many consumers can afford that panel, it was made strictly for post production studios.

    I'll be saying bye bye to the old girl pretty soon though. It takes up too much space, but that is it only real drawback it has.

    Spanky,

    Hows the Trolling going? Any more PC speakers to ask about? Oh by the way, did I mention I am heterosexual and homophobic? That make all the difference when I listen to Elton John.

    Go troll on your own board, which by the way sucked when I joined it last year just to get a laugh!

    I'm a very happy guy. Does that mean I should have a long talk with the wifey? She might beat me up.
    Hey John,
    Could you come out and have a talk with her?

    Every day is straight man's day.


    Every day when you talk about your wife or girlfriend you are letting us know you are straight. When a man brags about his latest romp with a woman. Yes everyday is straight man's day. So I feel if you are free to share those aspects of your life so should I be able to share.

    I'm guessing Hyfi is refering to the fact that SVI seems to 'brag' or at least let everyone know he is gay, a 'happy gay boy' as he puts it (or someting rather). There's nothing wrong with being happy, and for some being gay, but you have surely noticed the stating that he (SVI) is gay often comes back into his threads.

    As for straight man parades, well straight men aren't descriminated against as gays are, which is why such parades don't exist (or aren't necessary).
